(CNN) – A new ad backed by an independent organization supporting Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann's presidential run will begin airing in South Carolina Wednesday, according to the groups co-founder.
Veteran political operative Bob Harris, who launched "Keep Conservatives United," a so-called SuperPAC, in July, said the 30-second spot will run for one week in Columbia, South Carolina on CNBC, Fox News and CNN.
The commercial, much like the group's first web video takes aim at Texas Gov. and GOP presidential candidate Rick Perry over his fiscal history in the Lone Star state.
"Rick Perry's spending more money than the state takes in, covering his deficits with record borrowing. And he's supposed to be the tea party guy?" the spot says. "There is an honest conservative and she's not Rick Perry."
Under Federal Election Commission rules, a "Super PAC" can accept unlimited donations but must report its contributors and cannot coordinate with a candidate. Other candidates, including Romney and President Barack Obama have SuperPACs established by former aides to help in their fundraising efforts.
Harris, who started his career with the late North Carolina Sen. Jesse Helms in 1978, said he chose South Carolina because the first-in-the-South primary state "seems to be the state that Rick Perry is really focusing on since he's a southern candidate."
"Nobody will go after Rick Perry so I thought I would," Harris told CNN. "His record doesn't match the big talk."
Bachmann and Perry remain near the top of national presidential polls of Republican candidates. In a CNN/ORC International Poll released Monday, Perry received 27 percent support ahead of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney's 14 percent, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's 10 percent and Bachmann's nine percent.
